Here’s an embarassing blast from my past: the one time I went in costume to a convention. Chicago, 1997, as part of a group dressed as the Legion of Super-Heroes.
I’m not in all of the group shots because that also happened to be the year I was appearing at the show as part of DC’s staff. (I was their webmaster at the time.) As a result, I could only sneak away to dress up for a short time.
A very talented craftsman named Leman Yuen made most of the outfits, including mine. He’s the one playing Gates, the bug creature. I was very impressed by how he made such a non-human character work as an outfit. Saturn Girl Sidne helped organize it, if I remember correctly, and my predecessor in my DC job, Mike Leib, was also part of the gang as Ultra Boy.
